OPINIONS yours and theirs

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with people first...then business Ran Right Realty 636943 licensed to thrill

There is no end to what people think. You can ask anyone about what they think about this or that and they will respond (some better than others) but all will have a say so of some sort. Take this example for instance. I have extensive Real Estate knowledge forged in the fires of the field of experience. I know what works and what doesn't work

ADDED VALUE (mine)

Part of my education involved going to courtrooms all over Southern California in regards to different Real Estate matters thus testing beliefs, contracts, laws, compliance and what is required, allowed as well as prohibited, risky, litigious and not profitable. I am able to see the present, past and future with clarity

GETTING USED TO OTHERS

Now I know that my experiences are valid & valuable but I also know one other thing i.e. everyone thinks there's is too. Therein lies the work for me. I have to to be able to honor points of view, approaches, new ways & peoples preferred ways plus their ignorance & still share mine without offending or turning away people

THE OTHER DAY

I was talking to a fellow who works on rental units who made a lot of sense in his sharing but it was also mixed with non-sense as in not true and pointing this out to him was not as easy as you would think. First, he wasn't seeking to learn or modify beliefs and two, he was set in his ways. I left him with his beliefs....

WHAT ARE WE AFTER?

Wherever we go and whoever we consult with, we are seeking their experience. This is not limited to professionals or designated specific careers either. Tour guides, gardeners and cleaning people all can tell you something interesting about what they do and know. However, when it comes to purchasing an opinion

WE WANT WHAT WE PAY FOR

A Real Estate agent, a lawyer or an accountant are all representing to have professional opinions that matter in these fields and that we can rely on. While guarantees are not 100% we do get a degree of confidence when hiring them for their "know" how. While money-driven it is not the end all but the beginning of all

THE NEWBY

I wont leave out the newby either. What price can you put on exuberance or an eagerness to please? Plus many new folks to their fields want to get better at what they do and relish the opportunity to learn while getting paid. In the end, the newby brings the innocence of wanting to help and seeking help until it is done

TIME & EXPERIENCE

There is no substitute for time and experience. That's why people who have matured bring solid value to their offerings. While they are still learning they are also practicing what they know works! You do get what you pay for and in the end it all comes down to this....

RESULTS

In the arenas of getting paid for your opinion we are implying a result if someone goes along with you & hires you. In a social setting, opinions have a different dynamic & may just be for conversation either free-flowing or argumentative (think religion or politics). Promises implied/expressed kept matter in the end

TOLERATE

In professional as well as personal settings and arenas we must remember to be mindful and tolerant of others opinions and where they are and how they got there but at the same time not surrender what we know or our chosen way. It is wise to soften it all with FUN and patience for ourselves and for others while we do

Richie, real estate seems to bring out all types of opinions and "experts" more so than other topics. It does take tolerance and making it fun in order to deliver desirable results. You get what you pay for, oh so true.

Everyone has an opinion, whether it be right or wrong.  Some are open to other opinions that will help them improve, but others aren't and it is usually best to just leave them be.

I hear you; I get your points and I agree wholeheartedly, Richie! I have to say though, my favorite line in this entire post is, "I left him with his beliefs..."

Sometimes when dealing with others who have beliefs that you know to be wrong or flawed, it's best to do just that when common sense or rational thoughts are completely ignored!
